Seven prospect standouts from Friday night at the the Prep Hoops Circuit Midwest Showdown:


Ethan Hoelzel — Next Level Grind 2024 — PF/C

With his 6-foot-10 frame at the 15U level, there are not many players that are going to successfully step in Hoelzel’s way. On Friday, the power forward/center did a terrific job of using his size to dominate on both sides of the ball. On offense, he got position in the paint and finished layups. On defense, he used his long arms to protect the paint and influence shots. 

Collin Samson — Next Level Grind 2024 — SG

I was really impressed by Samson’s ability to score the ball on Friday night. Standing at 6-foot-3, Samson is a tall guard that has a sweet shooting stroke from behind the arc. In the second half of his team’s win, he also had a really nice finish at the rim in transition. If he keeps improving, I think that Samson will be a prospect to keep an eye latter in his career. 

Bryce Gantz — Wisconsin Blaze 2024 — PG
